If you can get ahold of the latest edition of Dr. Walsh's book on Prostrate Cancer, I think it will help you with your decision process.
So many things to consider: other health issues, age, life expectancy in your husband's family, any insurance or funding limitations, side effects of treatment options, ... ,
so many things that only the patient can consider properly.
I recommend that after you do your research and make a decision with your doctor, then
you make another appointment with another physician in
the most respected medical facility you can access to review
your decision and to discuss any options or factors you may have overlooked.I cannot stress enough how important this second opinion can be, even if it just endorses your original decision.
Please keep in mind, you will find the many (sensitive and intelligent and informed) women here in this forum can help you with ANY relational issue that comes to your mind.
Feel free to ask questions or just let us know how you feel. You are among friends.
Also, when you have time, look through the Helpful Hints thread at the top of the page.
